“It’s easy to be negative and unmotivated, but it takes some work to be positive and motivated.” – Donna Cardiollo
It’s difficult to maintain a positive focus on life when there’s so much going on around us. I know. However, successful people find a way to do so by staying focused on their past success rather than their past failures. Taking action steps on obtaining their daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly goals. Making life excited in general by creating bonds and relationships by being spontaneous. Just being constantly proaction in the pursuit of all objectives can make a boring long working day exciting.
First 45 Minutes Of The Day = The Most Important
So, remember on my last blog entry I talked about reviewing your successes for the day, reviewing the goals, focusing on the successful future, and making specific goals to accomplish the next day.
Some of you are wondering why at the end of the day? Well, whatever you ready, see, listen to, talk about and experience in the last 45 minutes of the day has a huge influence on your sleep and your next day. A good example is looking at dreams. Have you ever watched a video, talked to or about someone (positive negative way), or did something that inflicted any type of emotion – leading to that specific thing showing up in your dream? Have you ever went to bed pissed off and woke up with the same feelings you had the night before?
During the night, your unconscious mind replays and processes this late-night input up to six times more often than anything else you experienced during the day. This is why cramming for school exams late at night can work and why watching a scary movie before bed gives you nightmares.
This is why even reading good bedtime stories is so important for children. Those repeated messages, lessons and everything becomes the fabric of a child’s consciousness.
Think how much better it would be to read an inspirational autobiography or a self-improvement book before going to sleep. How about watching a video about Fiji travel before sleep? Meditating into sleep using a guided meditation? The last 45 minutes of the day are the most important.
